It just gets “better and better.” WDWNT has been releasing various aspects of the information they get on their upcoming trip and besides the decreased immersion of the “Databand” now being just called your “Magic Band” (which it likely has always been just that but they aren’t even trying to call it a Databand now) they are also offering a dance lesson and talking as some of your activities the $6k price tag covers.
Remember other activities include 30 minute segments for games like the “How well do you know your Co-pilot” or 15 minute bot racing. Now you can take dance lessons to learn the dance they made up for the Starcruiser.
I wish I was kidding, but I’m not.
Here’s what WDWNT posted:
For 15 minutes you can do the “Ryloth Dance Lesson.”
“Come to the atrium to learn the new dance that has the galaxy moving to Gaya’s hit song, “Rockstar Queen!”
Wait, her hit song is called “Rockstar Queen!?” That’s the best they could do?
They have also added a 15 minute “Cruise Director’s Evening Toast” to the agenda where you basically talk to people.
“Bring a drink (It’s BYOB) and join Lenka Mok to share stories of the first day of our journey while taking in the views of Bespin.”
Okay Bespin scenery sounds awesome (and also original trilogy) but, I don’t know what they are thinking.
They wonder why people are waiting or reviews before booking. A lot of it sounds like busy work to make you feel like you are getting something for your money. I’m sure there will be some big events too, but it just feels more and more like short activities to use up time.
So far it feels like fans are wanting to “live” Star Wars but are getting the Star Wars Holiday Special instead.
Maybe it will be amazing and I’m sure some of it will be. I am not yet seeing anything that warrants the super high price for less than two days. I’m a life-long Star Wars fan who even got a character named after me once (before it all was de-cannonized.)
I guess we will have to wait and see after the “sailings” start.
